I had an 1979 Alan Super Record for many years, it was a beautiful bike, fast and nimble. I never had a problem with it, but I didn't beat on it, either.
Frankly I don't like what you've done to yours, especially those goofy riser bars, but to each his own. These frames do flex if you hammer on them, and depending on how it's been treated over the years, your size, and how you ride, using it as a fixed gear is a bit iffy. They're not popular as a vintage bike because of the same durability questions you raise.
